'Ashes Of A Fallen Kingdom'
Stafford stalwarts Confined Within deliver their next slice of pop-tinged Metalcore, with more cherries to suckle on. Their debut album 'Ashes Of A Fallen Kingdom' sees more breakdowns, riffs and screams than heard at a torture chamber. Metalcore as we know it is becoming the norm, with bands doing it right, some doing it ok, and some wasting air in doing it. Confined Within sits comfortably on the sideline producing their own strand of Metalcore and not cloned metalcore. With melodic metalcore covering songs like 'Forgotten' and 'Demons', this quintet are in a league of their own, rolling in the benjamins with a selection of ear-raping tracks and soul-destroying musical compositions, such an alliance of fury, emotion, brutality and Stafford slickness, this boy band take the core out of Metalcore and whack in a whole new emphasis on the term. In comparison sounding similar to Bullet For My Valentine without the Welsh accent, Confined Within are armed to become the new kids to rock the Cardiff Metalcore kingdom's boats and send waves of destruction across the breadth of the rolling hills and mountains of the British Isles and eventually the wider area of Europe. Break the noise, seal the doors shut, for Confined Within are a volcano that has erupted and is spewing out 'Ashes Of A Fallen Kingdom'.
